A 45-year-old woman loses the ground below her feet; she steps out and falls in between the cracks. She finds herself confronted by overwhelming loneliness and doubt. Beyond the middle point of her life who is she? She seeks to rediscover her identity. Driven on a path of sexual exploration, and cross-country travels; she moves from Vancouver to Toronto, then into her parents’ basement in Calgary. Using physical comedy, low-fi technology, and text from emails between new lovers and lost friends, Catherine shares her intimate story of falling in between the cracks.
